– CESAR, LA RETROSPECTIVE, Centre Pompidou, Paris, Dec. 13, 2017 – Mar.26, 2018: 

The French sculptor César Baldaccini, famous for his compression of industrial objects and his expansions, is one of the most important French artists of New Realism. From his work addressing current themes like over-consumption, he questions through a satirical universe which denounces as much as it intrigues. The exhibition at the Pompidou Centre shows 100 works from around the world, many of which are today considered to be icons of modern sculpture. Undoubtedly one of the most important personalities of the last century, he is the author of the giant Thumb, located in the La Défense business district, a Centaur, in the 6th arrondissement and the bronze trophy for the ceremony of the ‘Césars’ French Cinema awards.
